In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and its massive impact on New York’s Jewish community, Hebrew Free Burial Association is, unfortunately, busier than ever. Since April 1st, HFBA has conducted more than 134 burials. Last year, in the same period of time, we had 30 burials.
Unfortunately, in many of these cases, family members are unable to attend the burial due to the statewide lockdown or their own health.
This increase in volume of burials has created a critical fiscal emergency for this important communal organization. Due to this tremendous surge in burials, the Hebrew Free Burial Association is currently facing a shortfall and needs everyone across the broader Jewish community to rise to the occasion to help them perform this tremendous mitzvah.
